I am wanting to breed broodiness into my flock. I have adult non broodies that will be culled.I have bantam cochins, buff orpingtons, and easter eggers. All are chicks. I also have a few unknowns that were just given to me. Today, my brother-in-law brought me a rooster. I have no idea what kind. What I would like to know is whether or not the broody gene is dominant or recessive. My intention was to get a broody breed rooster to mate into the easter eggers, but I now have an unknown, and I am wondering if a broody breed rooster specifically is critical to my intentions or if I can proceed using the non broody and use his offspring with a broody breed hen to breed broodiness into the NEXT generation. Did I make any sense?
